 The north Fife coast looked really gloomy.

Sun's out this morning, feels warm already. 

Off to Co'path shortly to visit little grandson on his 4th birthday. I wonder if the sun will break through there.

Aye yesterday was the worst day of the current spell for haar locally as it never shifted all day. Gloomy and cold, max 14c.

Delighted to report its all gone this morning and we have bright sunshine!

I was thinking of watering my lawn just now. I read before that it can damage the grass if water it during the day when the weather is hot, is this true?

If I was watering my lawn I'd do it in the evening, not sure if there's any logic behind that :)

Edit: I've Googled it and apparently this is wrong, 4am to 10am is best.

The tree in our front garden is shedding leaves probs due to a lack of water:

I had to run the lawnmower over that bit of the lawn to collect all the leaves but the grass under the tree isn't growing much.

A lot of plants can have thier leaves damaged if you water them when it's this hot & sunny but I'm not sure if grass is that susceptible. In any case, late evening or early morning is probably best as it'll gives the water time to soak in before too much evaporates. The less we use now the less likely we're going to see shortages if this dry spell continues. Not sure what the reservoirs are looking like up here but wife's parents in NW England already have a hosepipe ban

Can confirm yesterday was poor for the East coast

Car (slightly inaccurrate I know but I had been travelling for a fair few minutes) was reading 31c when I left Dumfries and I cried as it fell and fell. 25c at Moffat, 22c Abington, 19/20c passing the Pentlands

and 16c and cloudy in Leith

 

Much better when I left this morning though.

 

Back in the tropical south, another glorious day, cooler than of late.

Warm now though at 25.2c and slowly rising

Only 16c this afternoon but pleasant in the bright sunshine.

Yes better watering evening or early morning as the sun will magnify the water, Which in turn burns the grass/plants.

Thanks for the advice guys, I think I will just leave it as the local reservoirs are looking pretty low.

North Berwick today was sunny but a very chilly wind and about 17C, with a bank of haar hanging over the water. Home here and much warmer even at 6pm.

Much the same further down the coast, but the wee grandson had a great time playing in the garden with his new games

Really warm at  home now and I'm just preparing a meal to be taken out-of-doors - and also about to top up the bird-bath. I noticed the sparrows were seeking water this morning, with frequent visits there.

What a fine spell of weather, for most anyway.

I haven't a clue what a stationary lenticular is - but that is a Klingon ship!!!

Blue skies all day and another stunning evening.  Max temperature of 21C, the temperature being moderated today by a pretty strong SE wind (this made things feel cool out of the sun).

Crops round here are ripening fast - it may be the last day of June but the fields are getting that golden brown colour I would expect in late July.

My mother in the lake district is comparing this summer to 1976. I don't remember such a long dry warm spell as this on the Black Isle in the last 25 years. Like most folk I guess, I thoroughly enjoy summer warmth but we're reaching a point where the land is too dry to support crops. There was someone on the radio last night talking about approaching 'wilting point' in parts of central England and the Welsh borders, and there'll many more parts not far behind. (My fruit trees are dropping fruit now.) 

'We'll be ok, supermarket prices might go up a bit for a while but it's just a blip...' Ha ha. Fortunately we're still (just) in the EU. Any of you cretins who voted to leave still think this was a good idea?

Indeed. I rather fancy somewhere along the Moray Firth, between say Lossiemouth and The Sneck, to reach 28C this arvo...?☀️
